After moving to California at age 12, she began playing percussion in the band and was awarded percussion player of the year. Upon entering high school Kim joined the Valencia High School orchestra in Placentia, California as their pianist and was named the Musician of the Year her senior year. She then graduated from San Diego State University with her major in Communications and Music Education minor.
